Rupal Peak (5,640 M)


Rupal Peak is a lofty mountain in Pakistan's western Himalaya. The peak is located just south of Nanga Parbat on the Rupal Valley and is sometimes climbed by mountaineers as they acclimatize for higher local peaks. Despite its unique beauty, steep north face and impressive height, Rupal is greatly overshadowed by Nanga Parbat, the Mazeno Wall and the mighty Rupal Face. To its west lies Laila Peak (Rupal Valley) and to its north flows the Rupal Glacier, which later forms the Rupal River.
